Korinna Schönhärl is assistant professor in the Department for Social and Economic History, University of Duisburg-Essen. She holds a Ph.D. from Goethe University Frankfurt, where she was a research assistant at the Collaborative Research Centre "Culture of Knowledge and Social Change." She published her dissertation, "Knowledge and Visions: Theory and Politics of the Economists in the Stefan George Circle" (2009), which was given Goethe University's Friedrich Sperl Award. Her research interest lies in the combination of cultural and economic history on an international level, in the history of economic thought, and in banking history.

Another focus of interest is the economic history of migration. Schönhärl coedited the interdisciplinary volume The Economies of Urban Diversity: The Ruhr Area and Istanbul (2013).
